mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
SIAP...but back-to-back posts..whoa!
Anyway, It appears that all hope for MD DT Darian Cooper is not yet lost. Four days ago, it appeared as though Darian had eliminated Michigan, per a GBW report. However, Tom retweeted this from Cooper on Thursday:
DT Darian Cooper RT @SuperCooper93michigan coach just left my house
Intrigued, I did a little snooping. a dismayed fan asked him the following question over twitter:
@SuperCooper93 you really dropped Michigan???say it ain't so!!! Good luck whoever you choose, except when you play the maize and blue
Darian responded with the following:
@JRednick no I just want to know what happens with the coaching staff
So, it looks like, once the coaching situation is resolved, we could still have a very real shot with the kid.
A couple of days, I consolidated several reports about how badly Frost was tearing up the Shrine Bowl (between the best of the 2 Carolinas). Well, since then, Frost's play on the field has earned him the Number 1 spot on Rival's Top Players from the Shrine Bowl.
Frost is super-athletic and it became clearer than ever this week that his future is at linebacker at the next level despite his interest in playing wide receiver. He is so quick off the edge, is a ball of energy with great enthusiasm and hustle and he has the speed to run things down from the backside. In his drops, he gets good depth, reads the play well and he has good ball skills and instincts. Frost needs to fill out his frame and get stronger, especially in his lower body, but as a blitzing outside linebacker he fits the mold of a disrupter at the next level. He also has the potential to cover tight ends and slot receivers in certain packages because of his athleticism and he is a natural leader and the kind of player that brings a contagious enthusiasm to the field.
So what kind of players did he compete with for this spot? 5* Jadeveon Clowney sat out most of the week, but players like:
4* OT Brandon Shell, 4* LB Stephone Anthony (Both 5* on Scout), 4* LB Lateek Townsend, 4* WR Charone Peake (Also a 5* on Scout), 4* DT Phillip Dukes, ND Commit DE Ben Councell, 4* QB Marquise Williams, 4* Devonte Brown
Just to name a few...
DAYS UNTIL TERIC JONES' ACL REPAIRS ITSELF FROM THE POSTGAME CELEBRATION!
<but seriously, hope he gets better soon!>
I think there's a reason the NCAA banned schools from doing this anymore. What an eyesore. Pretty good game though.
I saw this on the ESPN Insider and wasn't sure if this is some national info we never heard of or the guy is pulling a Mark May and has no idea what he is talking about. All coaches have some ego, but this guy seems to be suggesting something. Any thoughts on what he is thinking.
Why you should watch: This one is turning out to be the Ego Bowl. Everyone was already aware of Rich Rodriguez's -- ahem -- reputation. But last week a Miami trustee revealed that Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen didn't get the job at The U because of his big ego, telling the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson that Mullen "acts like he invented the game". By the way, either reload the "favorites" button on your remote or get the laptop ready to crank out some ESPN3.com, because New Year's Day is going to require some multitasking ...
at least they'd get people talking.
